Dana's not going to do anything to piss off the NSAC because states like California, Jersey and New York would uphold their decision if the NSAC suspended the UFC's license. i know some are still in denial but them days are over.
Money! Dana wants to maximize profits, and having a grand prix won't help him do that. Maybe a big year-end card, but that's it.
On a side note, if Dana ever does decide to have a tournament (and hype the hell out of it), why not hold it in Hawaii, or some country outside of the US?
